I am glad I decided to return to a reunion. I reconnected with some long lost friends and was glad to catch up with others. I have really enjoyed the web site and reading about what every one has done before turning 50! Imagine what we can accomplish after 50.
I worked co op in my senior year so I was only in school 3 hours and I really don't recall much from 1977-1978 as I also graduated early in April of 1978. It was interesting to hear all the stories of what happened in our senior year. Many times I asked myself..."where was I when this was going on"...and then I remembered...I wasn't there...I was working.
I started working in insurance in my senior year and took a real interest in the claims side of insurance. I worked my way from a secretary at an agency owned by Zach Smith's step father to where I am today...a manager of a branch office and investigator. I have to say there are days it can be really rewarding and others that sour you on how deceptive people can be but it's a pay check and it has provided well for me.
I have not had any children of my own, but I do have a tribe of step children out there. :) As I had written before, I lost my husband Bill in 2005 to pancreatic cancer after 5 days of marriage. He was the love of my life and my only regret in life is that we were not able to spend more time together.
I moved from DeWitt right after high school. My parents sold our home and we moved back to Lansing. I spent several years in East Lansing and Lansing before moving to Fishers Indiana. I lived here about 4-5 years and headed to Chicago and then to Alpharetta, Georgia for a couple of years. I moved back to Indiana in 2001 and have been here since. I own a home that I have completely remodeled myself. I love to do home improvement projects and am pretty handy and creative when the task is before me. I also love to garden and my yard is the show piece of the neighborhood. People come over just to walk through the yard and admire all the flowers and plants.
I keep busy outside of work by creating jewelry that I sell, teaching others to make jewelry, knitting and doing home improvement projects for friends who aren't so talented.
I also spend a considerable amount of time with my "child in a fur coat." I adopted him a year after Bill died. I had lost my lab of 10 years just weeks before Bill was diagnosed so I wanted to be sure I was ready to take on this puppy. He has been a joy and he too has been a hit in the neighborhood. All the dogs come to our yard to play...I keep telling the neighbors I am going to charge a bark park fee but it keeps him active and me from buying him a "friend."
It was great to see all of you again...what ones I had a chance to speak with and to the Reunion Committee...great job.... it was very well planned and this site is just the best for us to all keep in touch. Best to all...Cindy

"I have to tell you that I LOVE your site! I have used it to plan several reunions now and I so appreciate your efforts and support. Thanks so much!"
"This is the supreme class reunion program out there. Those other sites charge you for almost everything you use or research. My advice to all the classes out there - give yourself a break including your wallet, and do the organization yourself with the fine help of this awesome program. Classreport is the Epic Smart way to manage your class activities and reunions. We consider this program as a legacy to our classes."
